A Breakup Party at Quimby’s with Vice Versa Press on 8/8

7:00 pm


Put on your best glitter makeup, tease that hair, squeeze into those dirty jeans and join A Breakup Party at Quimby’s! Featuring a series of smart-ass speeches, heartfelt rants, and stories of love gone WRONG: Vice Versa Press presents a very special night of zines, great conversation, and smart women with attitude.


Featuring the Chicago release of “Baltimore Breakups: A Pop-Up Memoir” zine, Quimby’s welcomes author Julia Arredondo to read excerpts from her latest written work. With titles such as “Guide to Dating Gangsters Vol. 1” and “Guide to Being Alone” under her belt, Arredondo brings it to you straight about the ups and downs of lovin’ in Charm City.


Struttin’ her stuff as the fashion icon she is, Vanessa Viruet will present her latest love forecasts to the audience as well as reflections about her most recent personal breakup. Love may get a gal down, but it sure can’t help the woman from being fabulous!


And the one and only Melissa Smith, relationship eulogist, will present her latest series of mournful speeches pertaining to heartache and love lost.


Vice Versa Press zines and paper goods will also be available for purchase throughout the night!


Facebook Event post is here.
